If you'd like to utilize additional tools to spotlight your magazine's commitment to smart publishing choices, we’d love to help develop a “Sustainable Paper Policy” statement with you. Whether it’s a simple pledge, a paragraph explanation of your environmental efforts, or tailoring an “Environmental Impact Statement” that communicates your magazine's green efforts going forward, we can provide support in order to bring about stronger consumer awareness and reader engagement.An environmental stewardship policy helps illustrate a long-term vision for sustainable publishing, articulate key principles and demonstrate commitment to sound stewardship. Developing a sustainable, strategic paper policy can set you up to grow profitably - and the Better Paper Project is dedicated to doing just that.
Get in touch with us if you'd like examples or information about potential next steps to define and share your environmental commitments with the public.
